In every crime category bar two, (drugs and possession of weapons) Manchester dominates in terms of numbers of crime committed.
Why should this be? Manchester itself has a population of 514,414 compared to Birmingham at 1,101,360 so surely Birmingham should have the higher crime rate? I don't know the overall numbers for Birmingham or Manchester so it could pan out that Birmingham has the higher crime rate overall but this is based on it being within a one mile radius of the city centre.
Manchester appears to be more crime ridden than Birmingham; Why? Watch

What is it counting as '1 mile radius of Manchester', though?
And it could be that more crime is reported in Manchester than it is in Birmingham.
